Vee Speers Photography – The Birthday Party


Vee Speers a studiat fotografia la Brisbane si a lucrat cinci ani  la ABC Television in Sydney.

In 1990 s-a stabilit la Paris, fiind de parere ca orasul are “potential nelimitat si surse de inspiratie nesfarsite”. Fotografiaza oameni excentrici, care au curajul sa fie diferiti.

Trasand o linie subtire intre realitate si fantezie, intre bizar si frumos, Speers a reusit sa faca o serie de portrete ce fac parte din expozitia “The Birthday Party”, pe care a prezentat-o in mai mult de 12 tari. Portretele ne trimit inapoi la propria copilarie, unde un costum facut acasa te putea transforma in supererou, printesa sau cowboy.  Efectul vizual este amplificat de simplitatea la care apeleaza de fiecare data artista, iar emotia este pasata de la cel fotografiat, la cel care priveste.

 

 

“Capturing the last days of childhood and seeing that slipping away with my own daughter; realizing that once you’re a teenager you’re not innocent anymore and that’s the way life is. I really wanted to package up that little world. That was my initial motivation. After that, I wanted to get in there and really explore that childhood through a child’s eyes. I shot them low down so they were dominating. We always look down on a child, they are small, but in the photos are taken at the child’s eye-level, so the children dominate. They’re not smiling but they are in control. They’re not unhappy. They are in their own world.” – Vee Speers.
